Last time I checked, dt only allowed up to 4 virtual terminals,
although the README said you could open up to 8.

Are you using "dt -n 4 -f small"?
  (opens with 4 vt's with a small font)

What machine do you have?  I had no problem setting up an
external terminal on a Mac II.

I wonder if the "not in login shell" is due to you being in
single-user or something.  Do you get that message for each
virtual terminal?
